I saw some list somewhere and MAMU was in the thousands. Someone mentioned they didn't keep track of setlists until after 69 this number could be true!

That seems unlikely. I believe they only played somewhere between 2200-2400 shows and I believe about 1800 of them are archived. So even if we assume that the 600 MAMUs that deadlists and setlists find are only from thise 1800 shows (i don't know if this is true). Then they played it on average 1 out of every 3 shows. Therefore the number could never reach the thousands. Additionally I think this is a song they played a few times real early on ('66) and then dropped for a while until around '69 (LiA had a thread about this recently). I suspect the 600 number is pretty closer to correct.

I realized they played it as early as 66 but didn't know they dropped it for a few yrs., which makes the original # more valid.
